I love to create new recipes or adapt existing recipes to suit my family. I hardly ever make a dish the same way twice, experimenting is such fun! I'm a mom to 3 fun and busy kids 13,12, 7. I enjoy cooking and learning new fast and easy recipes. I usually cook with my kids, so I'm always searching for kid-friendly recipes - both in prep and in taste. I've been cooking with my kids since they could sit up and pour. They love to help (and sample!), and they've never ever been picky eaters, I like to think there's a connection there. Involve them and the creative sensory process engages them. The pride of ownership makes them enjoy the food. It works for us. My heart is devoted to volunteering at schools, kids' activities and autism awareness advocate. My evenings are frantic shuttling my kiddos to their activities/sports and cheering them on. I love it! I'm also a freelance writer/designer and enjoy cooking, reading, movies, shopping.
